Marvel Studios is no stranger to grand-scale crossover events. Ever since 2012’s The Avengers, ensembles have been integral to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s success in bringing fan-favorite characters together.
The MCU’s crossovers have continued on a smaller scale on Disney+ with cameos like War Machine in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Kingpin in Hawkeye. In only a few weeks, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will bring character combinations to new levels of excitement and hilarity by including the Hulk, Wong, and Daredevil throughout its nine episodes.
But as it turns out, these may just be the tip of the iceberg in terms of MCU crossover events, as the franchise’s first show of Phase 5 appears set to bring the biggest MCU streaming event to date.
As described on the official Marvel website, Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion has officially been designated as a “crossover event series.” This is the first time that an MCU Disney+ series has been officially labeled a “crossover event,” leading fans to question how many potential MCU characters or plotlines may be crossing into Secret Invasion when it premieres in Spring 2023.
The site also reported on Cobie Smulders’ quotes from the show’s presentation at San Diego Comic Con, noting how she described it as “a darker show” that goes deep into each character involved. Fans will see a great deal of mystery throughout the series, which will be “a bit of a guessing game” from start to finish.
